Thank you Stacy Collins,Everything you just said is right my fiancee told me the same,friends told me same also..It would help me provide more for my children that is all for my children...My parents are good people don't get me wrong,but I feel they are taking all that money out of my children mouth just so they can upgrade their own phones and all even for their dog,My parents dog has 4 beds on top of each other to make it look like she has a princess bed which is cute but my kids had no beds at one point,I had to get those folding jail beds til I was able to get something better...I have friends that helps me more then my parents do...It's a shame how they are but I still love them...

Yes I have been paying rent for 8 yrs on top of paying some bills,I feed my own children I clothing my children but need my taxes money to help me more..I didn't know about taxes bcuz no one ever took the time to explain it to me & I never got anything in the mail about taxes bcuz they take my mail & give me what they think is necessary for me to have,one day I checked mail and seen taxes letter for me,My parents saw it & asked to see what it was so when they saw it they said oh its nothing then ripped it up in front of me and shredded it so I don't see it...I was talking to IRS & got some info...I can take them to court... They can be in alot of trouble bcuz they never asked for my permission in the first place weather I knew about taxes or not...No when I file for my own taxes they will decline them bcuz I am the mother and provider of my children...

Were you paying rent? How much financial support were your parents giving your children while you were living with them? How did you not know this was going on for 8 years, you both cant claim them so you had to know at some point that you weren't getting the credit for them when you filed your taxes.

I understand why you are upset, but, did you forget that you have a place to live because of your parents? Your parents can claim them because they have lived with them for more than half a year. So, they aren't doing anything wrong.

the tax credit you get for your children, are to go on your children. I understand that while they are living with them that they are claiming them, BUT that money needs to go towards them for food clothes, toys, etc.
If you dont have a job, of course you can claim anything, youll need to get a job if you dont already so you can claim them. And yes that money really does help, as long as you can file taxes you are the one to obtain that money for your children, they will not be able to anymore
